It is still autumn and we have the chance to observe the waning moon at the evening sky. This night I selected the pair Hase/Hase D. Instrument was my 32 cm Dobson at 192x.

Uwe, Beautifully done you got a real good look at this pair with the favorable libration and terminator location. I see Hase A on the floor of Hase and look how D is completely in shadow across the floor.I see Adams B and C and I'm guessing Adams was hidden in shadow.
I'll also bet you nudged the scope down a little to examine crater Petavius with great shadow and light.

Frank :)
